New Master-Planned Community in Douglas County on Track to Begin Sales in 2019

LONE TREE, CO., Aug. 22, 2018 – Shea Homes® Colorado, the master developer of Highlands Ranch, BackCountry and Stepping Stone in Douglas County, has begun preparing the land and developing infrastructure at The Canyons, a 1,270-acre master-planned residential community located east of I-25 between the Hess Road and Happy Canyon Road interchanges in the City of Castle Pines. Shea Homes purchased the parcel in December 2015 and followed a consultative planning process with government and community stakeholders before breaking ground on the project.

The Canyons

At build-out, The Canyons is planned to feature 2,000 single and multi-family homes from a variety of builders, including Shea. Additionally, upon completion a planned amenity village, located near the main entry, will welcome residents with a coffee house, resort-style pool, amphitheater/event lawn and clubhouses. “This is an inherently beautiful site within a remarkable city and Shea Homes is honored to be the master planner and community developer for this next great community in Castle Pines,” said Chetter Latcham, president of Shea Homes Colorado.

The Canyons Groundbreaking“Because this community will roughly double the footprint of Castle Pines, we know that homeowners and businesses in the surrounding area are especially interested in the activity going on at The Canyons. Right now, we are busy connecting utilities and preparing the land for roads and other infrastructure needed for us to deliver lots to our homebuilder partners. We expect the very first residents to be living in the community by the end of 2019,” Latcham added.

Bringing Fall to Colorado: Changing Colors, Fall Decor

by Shea Homes Colorado on October 4, 2016

 

How to bring autumn indoors.

It’s gorgeous out there, isn’t it? Autumn’s shorter, cooler days are working their magic, turning ash trees scarlet, maples orange, and aspens a shimmering gold. At our Shea Homes® communities, walks on the trails and playdates in the park are truly a feast for the senses these days. So maybe it’s worth considering how to bring some of that wonderful fall feeling inside your home, perhaps through autumn-fresh décor or seasonally inspired cooking.

BackCountry: The summer home that wasn’t…

by Shea Homes Colorado on June 17, 2016

 

Cathy and Sam loved Colorado. They’d been vacationing here for years to escape the sticky Houston summers. So when they retired a few years ago, and with their son married and living in England, they turned to each other and said, “Now we can live where we want to live.”

Thinking they’d buy a condo in the Denver area for summer living, they scoured the city with a Realtor® for days—but found nothing they liked. Discouraged, on the last day of their trip they took off on their own, wandered into Highlands Ranch and somehow “stumbled across BackCountry, a Shea Homes® Community,” says Sam. “Two hours later, we’d written a check.” Suddenly, that summer condo turned into a year-round dream home.

Plan before you plant.

May 26, 2016

  Is it a mere coincidence that plan precedes plant in the dictionary? We think not. As any master gardener will tell you, a thoughtful plan is as indispensable a tool as, say, your gardening spade. And, as any sun-starved gardener will tell you, the snowy/rainy days of early spring are the perfect time to […]

Wanted: A neighborhood for the kids at Stepping Stone

April 25, 2016

A few years ago, Jessica and Brent realized their East Parker home wasn’t quite as kid-friendly as they’d envisioned. A huge house on a half-acre seemed like a smart choice for their three boys. But it was on a corner lot on a hill next to a busy street—dangerous for bike riding. The home was […]
